As I’ve done for the previous five weeks, I will be updating news and views on all things WikiLeaks all day, with new items added at the top. All times are ET. For more follow me on Twitter. Read about my latest book here
UPDATE See Wednesday edition on this blog here.
11:35 Vanity Fair about to roll out their big piece on Assange promised on cover line of their still unseen Justin Bieber issue. Here’s how The Atlantic online just put it: "Sarah Ellison, a former Wall Street Journal reporter who penned the definitive book on Rupert Murdoch’s takeover of the paper, is responsible for the story on WikiLeaks. It will be ‘the twisted inside story of how Julian Assange spilled the government’s biggest secrets,’ the cover promises."
11:25 Sady Doyle on Bradley Manning: "Let’s start with the most important thing, something simple: Bradley Manning is accused of trying really, really hard to do the right thing."
11:20 First U.S. diplomatic casualty of cablegate may be our ambassador to Libya — recalled after that "voluptuous nurse" memo.
11:00 New interactive map at El Pais for their burgeoning number of published cables, now over 1000.
3:35 Sorry, folks, you’re on your own, I’m exiting for NYC for a few hours, see you later tonight.
3:30 Bloomberg: FBI steps up probes of Operation Payback ops in U.S. vs. PayPal, Amazon etc.
3:10 Former ambassador Carne Ross tweets: "One #wikileaks cable released 2day, only 1999 so far – is flow drying up? Guardian told me vast majority of 250k cables unclassfied."
3:00 We’ve covered or linked to cable stories coming out from the Norwegian paper Aftenposten but here is the page they have collecting everything.
2:05 Wild Forbes blog post on Anonymous video seeking support. Claims they are anti-American — but using good old American approach. "They want everyone to sign on to their cause without doing much, or without knowing any of the details of the actual political agenda. Outrage, and no personal responsibility, seems to be enough. Sad to say, this is a pretty good marker of the current political mentality in much of America, no matter what the political orientation…..They may hurt the state, but they are promoting many of its most important ideals. Maybe the government will thank them, after they lock them up."
